The victim of the assault was Justice John Adeyeye, PM News reports.
Sources say that Fayose and about 2o People’s Democratic Party (PDP) thugs arrived the court premises yesterday morning, and began to terrorize Adeyeye. Fayose is said to have slapped him, and then the thugs beat him up.
Adeyeye is currently receiving treatment at a private hospital in Ekiti.
Fayose is said to have accused the state judiciary of conniving with the All Progressives Congress (APC) to disqualify him and “dispossess him of his governorship mandate.”
He also accused socio-political group, “Ekiti-11” for trying to use “back door tactics” to achieve this aim.
